Why Do I Have White Bumps on My Arms?

Monday, 07 Jun 2010 11:35 AM


Question: My son and I both have little bumps on the back of our upper arms. We have tried many different things, but nothing seems to help. Do you know what this is and how to cure it?

Dr. Hibberd's Answer:

Bumps on your arms will require direct viewing by a professional. Get an appointment to see your primary care physician. If the diagnosis is not clear, you may be referred to a dermatologist for further evaluation.
Hopefully you are describing innocent milia (small, non-cancerous white cysts), which require no treatment at all, but you really need to be examined.
